threatening you. we don't know what happened there. that may have been what caused the fbi to be contacted by jill kelley. i'm purely speculating there. but that's where the fbi became involved and interested in the e-mail exchanges between jill kelley and general john allen. in his opinion, innocuous entirely, but that seems to be the spark that dragged him into this particular investigation. again, this senior official saying, no sexual relationship between these two people at all. >> all right. nick payton walsh for us, obviously this is having effects around the world, getting information, trickles of information pouring in from around the world. nick, appreciate your reporting, thank you. >>> let's go down to the pentagon for more on general allen's communication with jill kelley. barbara starr is there. we're hearing about tens of thousands of documents handed over to investigators, just how much contact really did kelley have with the top commander in afghanistan because the numbers sound just unbelievable, 10,000 documents. >> don't they? it sounds staggering. it might actually be

contributor and former assistant director of the fbi. welcome, tom. >> good morning, carol. >> so kelley san honorary consulate to south korea. now they may fire her if events warrant. this is just getting embarrassing. >> well, i don't know exactly what they're firing her from since that really is a pretty meaningless term in the first place. if she gets demoted from some position that almost means nothing, so what? >> it's hard to understand all of these terms. honorary consulate means she helps the south koreans set up appear parties and stuff? she introduces them to people in the united states? do you know what an honorary consulate is? >> not exactly. diplomatic status is invoked by the host country, like south korea saying this person would be working in your country and we would like to accredit them as a diplomat. that means normally a citizen of south korea who will be assigned and posted in the united states. the status of diplomatic immunity -- diplomatic status, i should say, is pretty strictly contr controlled between the two governments and not just conferred out there. the hon
and they planned on going into afghanistan. the informant, fbi informant infiltrated these four men and helped the fbi bring them down. throughout the entire document, it says the informant tried to talk the men out of jihad. but they said they wanted to go to a much better place, so to speak. martha: thank you very much, adam housley. bill: day number two, you feeling better? we are in our new digs. i was a little off kilter yesterday. you will love all the new things we have in this studio. bill: they worked on this thing for two months before the election came around. weeks left to reach a deal on the so-called fiscal cliff. but the president and the house minority leader nancy pelosi on the same page? martha: a top lawmaker making serious charges against the consulate attack in libya. how he's saying two different time lines don't quite match up. bill: house intelligence head michael rogers says the time line released on the cia talking points conflicts with testimony given by the director of national intelligence. this as senator chuck grassley presses the defendants justice and the fbi o
chief called it an act of terror. we had the fbi and i believe the national center for counterterrorism also giving briefings. >> paul: that's right. >> saying this. why was general petraeus's testimony then so at odds with other parts of the community? >> but does this, would this give-- what does it mean for, say, susan rice and the administration then? is this, does this help them politically by shielding them or does petraeus here saying i thought it was a terrorist attack, does that mean this puts, for example, susan rice's statements more up to scrutiny? >> well, i think answers the fundamental question, did they deliberately mislead on this case for political reasons because they were driving the narrative that al-qaeda had been decimated and the war, war was receding or a question of incompetence. neither of those two things is good for the administration although it's after the election, so, they can get the consequences. >> let's take a look at the president talking about susan rice, the u.n. ambassador who many think he will nominate to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of
to the pentagon and the i.g. on the one hand and to the f.b.i. with regards to general petraeus. >> he's not -- big picture watching, he's not shaking his head saying, guys, we need a more credible, competent sense of leadership? >> he's not going to make grand pronouncements or decisions about things based on two situations, two individual cases. he's focused on the missions that the military is tasked with carrying out and the c.i.a. and the general intelligence community is tasked with carrying out and with enacting his overall agenda. which encompasses not just national security policy but obviously domestic polcy. -- policy. yes. >> jay, has the president spoken to general allen directly? >> not that i'm aware of, no. >> secretary panetta? >> i'd have to check that. secretary panetta has been traveling. >> as sort after follow-up, does the president see this in general as an unwelcomed distraction at a time when he's just -- was re-elected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of the fiscal cliff and his cabinet? >> i certainly i think wouldn't call it welcome. obviously the -- a
of the investigation. the f.b.i. has its own protocols in terms of how they proceed. i'm going to let director mueller and others examine those protocols and make some statements to the public generally. i do want to emphasize what i've said before. yen petraeus had an extraordinary career. he served this country with great distinction in iraq, in afghanistan, and as head of the c.i.a. by his own assessment, he did not meet the standards that he felt were necessary as the director of the c.i.a. with respect to this personal matter he's now dealing with with his family and with his wife. it's on that basis that he tendered his resignation and it's on that basis that i accepted it. but i want to emphasize that from my perspective at least, he has provided this country an extraordinary service. we are safer because of the work that dave petraeus has done and my main hope right now is that he and his family are able to move on and that this ends up being a single side note on what has otherwise been an extraordinary career. >> what about voters? do they deserve to know? >> i think you'll to sr. to talk to
know it? and what did he do about it? >> reporter: reports also surfaced that the fbi found classified military documents at the home of paula broadwell. her security clearance was suspended. jill kelley, the woman who touched off the initial fbi investigation has had her pass to enter an air force base suspended indefinitely. even with the swirling scandal, president obama has far more pressing matters on his plate says henry brady. >> most of the people in the white house are sitting around saying, let's just let this take its course, people are going to complain and make noise, but let's focus on the big important thing, which is this fiscal cliff. >> reporter: now with the petraeus scandal, one more item has been added to the president's agenda. appoint a new director of the cia. in berkely, rob roth, ktvu, channel 2 news. >>> the lights are finally back on at san francisco's city hall tonight and the building's dome is lit up once again. the whole power was restored at 7:15 this evening, following a fire in a basement electrical vault last night. when city hall opened there was st
of the according to the f.b.i., the four men accused of plot to go join al-qaeda and travel to afghanistan to kill american soldiers. one of which served in the air force. so what does this tell us about the so-called war on terror which we're not allowed to call anymore? peter johnson, jr. what do you conclude from the rhetoric to reality? >> we got trouble. we got trouble in riverside county, california. four people have been charged. one american, three others who were residents, a fellow from the philippines and mexico as well. and they were charged with getting ready to be part of jihad in afghanistan. one of the men, 34 years old, the oldest, has been detained in afghanistan. the others charged here in california. it was based on a sting operation involving a confidential informant. f.b.i. joint terrorist task force in southern california. these folks were going to target practice. they were going to paint ball practice. they were talking about whether their interests in suicide bombing was c-4 or on the line as a sniper. and how much money they had to get to get to afghanistan. they were sh
of the intelligence community there, folks from the state department, the f.b.i. everybody there was asked do you know who made the changes? nobody knew. the only entity that reviewed the target points that was not there was the white house. >> watergate style hearings are not needed. but they are calling for such a committee. >> shannon: doug, thank you very much. all right, here with his reaction to the israel and libya situations, homeland security chair and intelligence committee member pete king. thank you. thank you very much. >> shannon: start with pennington libya. what we do know and -- benghazi libya. what we know and don't know. there is a great number of talking points that it seems from when they left the c.i.a. or left with general petraeus seen of them, to when they ultimately got to ambassador rice there was a change. >> i don't know what the democrats in the white house are trying to hide. it's not what they are saying. they both said the intelligence community in its entirety signed off on talking points. they went to the administration. come back and the key language was changed. wh
reserves got her security clearance suspended. and the fbi agent who helped launch the investigation into the scandal, frederick humphreys ii, a veteran counter terrorism investigator. the former senior adviser to president reagan, pat buchanan joins us. rush limbaugh said this is different than watergate. >> as a basic issue, yes it is. watergate was about a bunch of guys, going over to the watergate offices to plug the phone of larry o'brian. criminal activity, yes. but petty compared to a terrorist attack that kill an american ambassador and two navy seals and a diplomat. people who were begging for security and begging for help out there for months. >> greta: i think the important point to make that is people just want facts. they want information. and that's what has been so profoundly difficult to get. there are not necessarily, you can't make any accusations because they can't get the facts. >> let's take a look at what the president said. susan rice, we sent her out there. she went on five television shows and she told a patently false story. the president said she based it o
thought he was going to get away with it, it seems to me. he acknowledged to the fbi the affair and went on a six-nation tour to the region, went to libya, looked at his own benghazi investigation. he didn't decide to resign until james clapper asked him to resign. >> until it became public. the fbi calls you and says, we know this, you know this, no one else knows this, you're operating on one -- >> congressman becerra, get in the middle between those guys. >> there was a personal failing, a deep, severe personal failing. does it break into the realm of the public world, the responsibilities that -- >> what about judgment? what about judgment? >> well, that's surely the point. >> isn't that the bottom line here. >> the american people are not moral-less about this. they never gave up their affection for and job approval of bill clinton. this is a question of you want your cia director to have good judgment. is that asking too much? and this was obviously a case of bad judgment. there's a -- i would hope, by the way -- >> and should it just be the cia director or should it be anybody? wh
is at the epicenter of this scandal. new this is morning she is not likely to face charges. fbi agents raided her home, taking computers and other documents earlier this week. finally, we now know the identity of the fbi agent who first investigated the whole mess. by now you probably know him as the shirtless agent, the guy who sent a shirtless photo to jill kelly, the other woman involved in this mess. fbi agents name is frederick humphries, over those supposedly harassing e-mails now linked to paula broadwell. hope you got that. >>> controversy over benghazi, as you know, has reached a boiling point, though. yesterday at his first press conference, being row elected, president obama has strong words for anyone who blames u.s. -- united nations ambassador susan rice for the benghazi response. here is what the president said. >> as i've said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> oka
it. >> if i'm running the fbi. if i'm running the cia and i want access to them because i have to get the investigation to find out when the next attack is coming and what happened with the last attack, i would be raising hell to try to get somebody on the highest level to help me out. why is the phish and maybe -- is the fbi and maybe -- can't get access. call all the senators, feinstein as well as graham get me access. john brennan get me access. >> steve: the administration doesn't want -- like lindsey graham just said they are trying to run out the clock until the election. >> brian: i don't understand why the fbi isn't more outraged. >> gretchen: maybe that's part of the reason why we are seeing drip, drip. somebody is behind the leaks. here is retired admiral james lions. he says courage was lacking in benghazi. he has written an op. ed about it here is a snippet from that according to his article. having been in a number of similar situations i know you have to have the courage to do what's right and take immediate action. obviously that courage was lacking for benghazi, the sa
concerned, jenna, by the thought that the cia and the fbi and our entire intelligence gathering community, if you believe them, can't figure out for 10 days whether there was a demonstration or not. i saw, i saw the video yesterday. it was very clear there wasn't a demonstration. there were people they could have interviewed. i think that is a an important question to ask. why don't you ask people that were there that were in germany the next day. we got people out of there to germany the next day. what they saw and said there was no demonstration. don't use that as the background for what happened. jenna: just for clarity the video you're mentioning is video of the attack in benghazi? >> it was surveillance video that wasn't initially available. we shouldn't have to have a video to show there was no demonstration going on. there were people that could have been asked. it shouldn't have taken 10 days for for the intelligence community to find out that something didn't happen. jenna: senator, talk about the impressions that you got from the hearing. this of course being closed and classifi

and could have easily found out by september 14th, the fbi based on interviews, had determined there was no protest at the consulate before the attack, chris. >> katherine herridge on capitol hill. growing confrontation between israel and the palestinians has a new dimension tonight. egypt's new islamist government is promising to stand by the palestinians and is telling israel to end its air strikes on gaza. this as palestinians fire rockets at jerusalem and israel calls up 16,000 reservists, increasing the likelihood of a full scale ground war. correspondent david lee miller is near the israel-gaza border tonight. >> for the third day in a row, israelis ran from cover fired by palestinian militants in controlled gaza. more than 150 attacks were launched in the southern israel, that caused panic and destruction, but no fatalities. for the first time in the current conflict, air raid sirens were heard in jerusalem where two rockets apparently landed in empty fields outside of the city and the second day in a row, israel's largest city tel aviv was under attack, and a rocket in

serious situation. there's a lot of concern about the fact that the f.b.i. didn't come back for three weeks. the reason is when they had to go back they needed protection. they needed to make sure that their lives were not at risk again. and we had to rely in the beginning with a very unorganized government and security group who was working with us and that was the libyans themselves. >> can you explain rice's comments five days later? why that was still the line of spontaneous -- >> we talked some about susan rice. susan rice got a lot of the same information that we did. i'll make a comparison to colin powell. when colin powell went before the united nations, getting information from the administration on the facts. >> you said that within 24 hours -- [inaudible] this was five days later. >> i said they knew right away that there were terrorists involved in the operation. >> why wasn't that part -- >> wait, are you finished? what? give it to me. >> in other words, if he knew within 24 hours it was terrorist-related, how come five days later in the talking points for susan rice it s
is when to retired generals say is a war zone. the other extreme is you can look at fbi statistics to show hat if you look at borders,, which says the border is safer than it appears. you'll see that border areas have less mortars -- murders. i do not want to get into definitional debate. we can talk about what spillover is. >> you commented. you work yourself as a sponsor for additional resources. i am grateful for you doing that. you brought us the general report. -t. to say that it is improper to say that there is -- washington is in denial. to attack two of our nation's senior military professionals, like you did in the congressional hearing, and when they were merely giving their reflection of what is going on based on their decades of experience -- you are dead wrong. i want to follow up with that. here is why washington is in the nile -- -- denial -- the president of the united states comes to the state and make jokes about the safety and security of our country and joking about the border be safer than ever. we have the secretary of homeland security saying that we have had 140 dea
by the i.g. and the d.o.g. and the fbi and the cia and that might have something to do with it. it is a situation that has turned tampa, and again, we have seen it on "saturday night live" running the humorous skit, but at the heart of it is macdill air force base which is right now observing events in israel, they don't control the military affairs there, but over in egypt as well as the rest of the region, so they have a lot on their mind as well as u.s. special options command and as well as the area that brings in millions off dollars into the local community. so it is a mandate to engage with the community and that is what parts of this "friends with macdill" was. >> well, talk about the probe and how that it is run to investigate and reveal, i guess, how many people around the community have access to the nation's military leaders. >> no, they know. there's about 800 people on the "friends of macdill" program and created by the previous base commanders to get community leaders on to the base in daylight hours and nonsecure areas to engage with the community. what they are
